been around for quite a while already and have been playing quite a few shows
over the past year(s). When I realized they were releasing their fourth
full-length ‘Borrowed Time’, I thought it to be the ideal moment to give these

Young Scottish rockers Salt River Shakedown are set
to release ‘Road To The Sacred Island’ on 19 July 2019 Independently. The four-piece, although still in their early

Over the course of eleven years, Boston melodic
hardcore five-piece Defeater’s albums and singles have all told the story of
the internal abuse, travails, and trauma endured by a struggling fictitious working-class
New Jersey family in the decades following World War Two. Their debut album, ‘Travels’, told the story
of the younger son’s murder of the abusive father, subsequent vagrancy in New
York City, and eventual return to the family home where his mother had died in
the intervening period. Second album ‘Empty
Days & Sleepless Nights’ dealt with events that took place within the
family during the younger son’s period in the wilderness, narrating them from
the elder son’s viewpoint.
